2013-08-06line-range: teach -L/RE/ to search relative to anchor pointEric Sunshine
Range specification -L/RE/ for blame/log unconditionally begins searching at line one. Mailing list discussion [1] suggests that, in the presence of multiple -L options, -L/RE/ should search relative to the endpoint of the previous -L range, if any. Teach the parsing machinery underlying blame's and log's -L options to accept a start point for -L/RE/ searches. Follow-up patches will upgrade blame and log to take advantage of this ability.

2013-03-28log -L: :pattern:file syntax to find by funcnameThomas Rast
This new syntax finds a funcname matching /pattern/, and then takes from there up to (but not including) the next funcname. So you can say git log -L:main:main.c and it will dig up the main() function and show its line-log, provided there are no other funcnames matching 'main'.

2013-03-28Implement line-history search (git log -L)Thomas Rast
This is a rewrite of much of Bo's work, mainly in an effort to split it into smaller, easier to understand routines. The algorithm is built around the struct range_set, which encodes a series of line ranges as intervals [a,b). This is used in two contexts: * A set of lines we are tracking (which will change as we dig through history). * To encode diffs, as pairs of ranges. The main routine is range_set_map_across_diff(). It processes the diff between a commit C and some parent P. It determines which diff hunks are relevant to the ranges tracked in C, and computes the new ranges for P. The algorithm is then simply to process history in topological order from newest to oldest, computing ranges and (partial) diffs. At branch points, we need to merge the ranges we are watching. We will find that many commits do not affect the chosen ranges, and mark them TREESAME (in addition to those already filtered by pathspec limiting). Another pass of history simplification then gets rid of such commits. This is wired as an extra filtering pass in the log machinery. This currently only reduces code duplication, but should allow for other simplifications and options to be used. Finally, we hook a diff printer into the output chain. Ideally we would wire directly into the diff logic, to optionally use features like word diff. However, that will require some major reworking of the diff chain, so we completely replace the output with our own diff for now. As this was a GSoC project, and has quite some history by now, many people have helped.

2013-03-28Refactor parse_locBo Yang
We want to use the same style of -L n,m argument for 'git log -L' as for git-blame. Refactor the argument parsing of the range arguments from builtin/blame.c to the (new) file that will hold the 'git log -L' logic. To accommodate different data structures in blame and log -L, the file contents are abstracted away; parse_range_arg takes a callback that it uses to get the contents of a line of the (notional) file. The new test is for a case that made me pause during debugging: the 'blame -L with invalid end' test was the only one that noticed an outright failure to parse the end *at all*. So make a more explicit test for that. Signed-off-by: Bo Yang <> Signed-off-by: Thomas Rast <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
